Sunday 1st March , a fantastic u12 in2 Hockey girls tournament!
Hosted by Haslemere Hockey club, the best clubs from Hampshire pitted their skills to see who could make it to the regional round in London.
Romsey’s squad consisted of 10 girls , Zoe P, Imogen A , Harriet F, Hannah T, Isobel L, Ellie E, Eliza H, Lucy W, Alisa S, and Tilly D.
The girls played a total of 7 pool games only losing one to the eventual winners Haselmere 1-0.
Their hard effort and great team play through the pool stage got them into the semi final against Fareham where they battled out a tense 0-0 draw which meant penalty flicks to decide the match.
The Fareham keeper made one fine save which was enough to see them through to the final. The tournament was not over though, Romsey now had to play the 3rd /4th play off match against New Forest.
This again was a tense affair with great play all round plus super goal keeping from Ellie, another 0-0 , more penalties!
Some parents could not watch!
A super save from Ellie gave Romsey the advantage and despite having to re take her penalty Harriet held her nerve to score giving Romsey 3rd place.
A fantastic day of Hockey and a great team performance from a great group of girls.
Thanks to all parents for their support plus Julia, Elaine and Sally for their hard work.
Well done all!
